Re: “Oklahoma botches one execution; stays another

I wonder how much 19 year-old Stephanie Nieman suffered when Lockett bound, sodomized, raped and then shot her. Stephanie was not Lockett's only victim that night, but his plan and act of murdering her is what placed him on death row. Before you grieve too greatly over this man's botched execution, remember the suffering he personally inflicted on an innocent 19 year old girl - suffering that she endured for far longer than 40 minutes, and the ongoing suffering her loved ones will continue to endure. Here is a summary of Lockett's convictions:
The spree in June 1999 began when Lockett and two others forced their way into Bobby Bornt’s residence in Perry, police said. Nieman, 19, of Perry and another 19-year-old from Perry arrived at the home and were accosted by the men and had their hands bound with duct tape. One of the women was raped. Authorities said the women did not know the suspects. Bornt, his nine-month-old son and the two women were taken to a location in Kay County where Nieman was shot. Police said the others were put back in trucks, driven back to Perry and released. The child was not harmed.
Nieman’s body was found in a shallow grave along a dirt road near Tonkawa. One of the suspects led police to the body. The woman’s two friends have said they believed they were allowed to live because they had children. In addition to the murder charge, Lockett was found guilty of conspiracy, first-degree burglary, three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, three counts of forcible oral sodomy, four counts of first-degree rape, four counts of kidnapping and two counts of robbery by force and fear.
Lockett has been on death row since October 11, 2000.
